Back to one of my pet hates during the Brexit Campaign.
BBC radio news reports "Demonstrations in several cities against decision to prorogue parliament".
The only accompanying sound clip was a counter-demonstrator grumbling about "Thwarting the will of the people".
I caught a BBC News coverage of the march and from memory the voice over said there was a mix of protestors and of the three people who gave their vox pop to camera one was holding a Socialist Worker placard and another was a transgender person who looked like Frank Maloney.
Caveat: I have absolutely no problems with transgender person or asking them for their opinions on any matter but it was almost as if the editor was playing to the gallery of the average Daily Mail reader who would have spluttered into his cup of tea, nudged his missus and said, 'Look at that, the protestors are all bloody leftie liberals'.
Nothing wrong with Frank either. Top bloke.
